Default spam collection mystery in evoloution

Since f7 evolution has really been efficient in separating out spam from
my mail stream. Maybe I nnow get one spam message a week at maximum not
i the junk folder. In fact it is to efficient. There is a regular poster
to fedora-list that always has his messages put in junk.

Up to now I can't alter this behavior. Anyone have any suggestions?

Is yours using spam assassin to do the filtering? Do you keep spam
assassin up to date?

See the sa-update man file. I'm not sure if it's still the case, but
you ran that command daily to update the filtering rules from the spam
assassin website. It wasn't kept up to date by using yum.

I haven't used spam assassin for ages, since I find it a pain. But do
you have a "this is not junk" button in the junk mail folder in
Evolution, and does it reprogram the rules accordingly?

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.

Yes I do but it is used somehow internally by evolution. spamd does not
have to be running.

I have a this is not junk button but that does not do anything that I
can see. Traditionally spamassassin was controlled by commands in the
~/.spamassassin/user_prefs file. The databases get updated so that seems
to be doing something but nothing else in the user_prefs file seems to
work.

The real question is how does evolution use spamassassin?
